I am preparing to upgrade MySQL from version 5.0.22 to version 5.1.44 on my local PC.
Cur ver: mysql Ver 14.12 Distrib 5.0.22, for Win32 (ia32)
New ver: mysql Ver 14.14 Distrib 5.1.44, for Win32 (ia32)
What is the procedure for upgrading?
Should I un-install the old version before installing the new version?
How do I transfer the data (in the database tables) from the old version to the new version?
I found plenty of information about installing MySQL, but not much on upgrading.
What should I watch out for during the upgrade?
Any comments or a link to additional information will be appreciated.
